OLA recommendation working group amendment

An amendment was offered to the supplemental budget bill to form a working group to find ways to align the funding and program requirements among early childhood programs that serve Minnesota’s youngest learners. Doing this could simplify the use of the programs for families and improve efficiency for program administrators that rely on multiple funding streams from the state. The working group would consist of House and Senate members and work with stakeholders from the Departments Education, Health and Human Services. The amendment passed on a 34 to 31 vote.
